Hi there,

We are about to take the plunge and move over.

I have been looking at Parque Holades.

There  is a good opportunity there.

What is the area like?

Anything I should know?

It's a great area to live - mixture of nationalities - locals and foreigners. Very quiet, very safe, but within easy drive of Rosario and Corralejo and only 15 mins from the airport. Currently no supermarket, (as it closed down last year), but I think it will come back. 2 great restaurants located in the Parque, one of which also sells milk, bread etc. There is also a friendly  bar, which does snacks. Nearest supermarket is Mercadona, 10 mins drive. The lovely fishing village of Jablito is 10 mins walk and there you can swim safely.

We move there 2 years ago (winters only) and absolutely love it. Our neighbours of all nationalities have made us feel very welcome.

I think it's one of those areas that has been neglected for a while, but there is a lot of renovation work going on, which is a good sign as it means the area is up and coming.

feel free to ask any more questions.

Thanks.

Unfortunately we were gazumped on the one house we were eyeing. 

We are coming in January to have a look at properties and hopefully get bank account sorted.

Frankly, I cannot wait to move, although probably will take 2 years to complete it.

Was up there last week, its a bit run down but if you can handle that and you can get a good deal on property and it gets you on the island good.

You will definately need a car.

Good luck

I know a couple of really good estate agents if that helps - Nick from Goldwater - he was our agent and there is a really nice lady who lives in Parque Holandes and so knows all the houses - her name is Nadia and she works for Fuerteventura Residences in Caletta.

Good luck!

I have just purchased a property in La Caleta which is a short walk from the main part of Parque Holand├ęs. The estate agent, Goldacres took us to the Bank to open an account, organised the lawyer and took us to the notaries office. It all proved quite simple. I am using the Sabadell bank as they all speak English and the online banking is in English. Even the ATM is in English. You will need to make a Spanish will after completing the purchase. The only thing that I wish I did differently was to use a money transfer\exchange service other than the one recommended by the estate agent. I just didn't feel comfortable using the company they advised. Yes they did save me money but no more than I could have done myself so I would suggest shopping around a bit. I'm using starling bank for money transfers at the moment. They charge 0.04% to transfer GBP into euros but you get the actual bank exchange rate. It is also worth giving the lawyer the power of atourney. They charge for this but it takes away all of the hassle and you don't have to be in the country to exchange contracts.
